Think of long lazy summer days, spent in a haze of late breakfasts at the village coffee bar just next door, cappuccino, freshly squeezed orange juice and mouth watering pastries or a lovely piece of fresh focaccia stuffed with ham and cheese to start your day.
Take some home cooked vegetable pie and filled foccaccia to the beach with you or to the local water holes for bathing, within walking distance. Then when you come home take a long cool drink or a glass of wine onto the balcony with you and watch the beautiful surroundings and locals going about their business, meander down to the pizzeria for an alfresco dinner and take in one of the local dances. Collect the kids from the sports field where they have been having fun with the local children in a wonderfully safe atmosphere. The apartment is big enough for two families of 4 to be comfortable if you fancy a holiday with friends or family.
The apartment is south facing and very large, all on one floor on the second floor of a three floor building in the heart of the village but on the road leading to he piazza so great for people watching on the long balcony.
